Fifty days after Easter we celebrate Pentecost--the coming of the Holy Spirit--our advocate--bringer of gifts to build up the church. Whether you are gathering with your learners or looking for ideas to send home for families, this feast needs to be regarded with the intentional celebration that it merits. Don't forget to wear your red to Mass on Sunday. Maybe an idea or two from this list will spark something new to assist those in your parish with the celebration.

Faith at Home: Holy Week for Families
The rites of Holy Week are essential to an understanding of being a Catholic Christian. While Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday, the Triduum begins at sundown on Holy Thursday and lasts until sundown on Easter. As we gather as parish communities to celebrate these rites, give parents some ideas on how to share the meaning of the symbols with their family.
